Ohhh-kay ...
When a 20-year-old cave-dweller ventures out from under his pelts and into the daylight, steps into the room where you're working (above) and says in a rumbling monotone, while scratching bits of himself, "Jeez, Mum, you really need to tidy this room up ..." you realise you are actually experiencing literary conventions like paradox, and, more obliquely, irony.
To say nothing of sarcasm and cheek.
Oh — and hypocrisy.

I love to recieve house-keeping advice from my nearly 20 year old too. I feel myself revert to 14 and discover an almost uncontrollable desire to make even more mess.

Hi Les,
I am beginning to think I am a very bad influence on, or are you just posting a picture of one of my rooms. I am proud of the effort that you have put into this room, well done Les .
